this morning is a hero's welcome for the real nfl referees. fans in baltimore gave them a standing ovation, ahead of last night's ravens/browns game. the replacements just one day after the league and referees union agreed on a new eight-year contract. nischelle turner is live in los angeles. they loved them at least at the very beginning. how did it go? >> four minutes they loved them for, soledad. you know, it didn't take long for the boos to come out. it wasn't because of bad calls or calls that fans thought were wrong. it was because, you know, when you have the home team and you make a call against the home team, fans don't tend to like that. the refs, the real regular refs did get that standing ovation. here's one of the calls in the third quarter about seven minutes in, a helmet-to-helmet hit call. they really heard the boos then. i was kind of taking notes while watching the game last night. one of the things i wrote down, it's kind of hard to look at the refs when you're watching on television. but that really is a good thing. because one of the benchmarks to see if they did do a
. fans on both sides of the aisle hope this dispute is settled soon. the baltimore ravens were given a one-point lead over the new england patriots and a series of rules that have been botched are driving fans and players crazy. all this because of the labor dispute between the nfl and the regular referees that began when the referees were locked out in june. the referees want more money asking for increasing their salaries from $149,000 to $189,000. compare that to the median nfl player's salary, $770,000 a year. it's important to remember the average nfl playing career is only three-and-a-half years. so these are not full-time jobs for them. the nfl wants to make the refs full-time. the legal also wants to move them from a pension system to a 401(k). but this the context of a business that brings in $9.5 billion a year, it seems relatively solvable. an nfl referee for 25 years who worked two super bowls told me he doesn't blame the replacement refs who have been pulled from small colleges, high schools and lower-level pro leagues. what were they really not ready for at this level o
or not. first, the american league east is tied again. baltimore routing tampa bay 9-2. meantime, the boston red sox got to play spoiler. they rallied to beat new york 4-3. so that leaves the orioles and yankees tied at the top with identical 79 1/2-62. i don't know how you get a half. i heard a half this morning on npr. i don't know how i put that in. it may be 79-62. i will figure that out.

me. host and that social media includes our phone calls. bruce, baltimore, good morning, independent line, thank you for waiting. caller: how you doing, good morning. i watched the democratic convention and you also speak about how obama captured bin laden and all the praise of how senator obama did such a great job during the war and so forth. i think the credit should go to george bush. george bush is the one that set up all these ways of catching bin laden, setting up going to war in iraq. but all the democrats, all they are like perform colmes, they want to give obama all the credit for all the polices george bush set. host: thank you bruce. allen colmes. guest: i think to some extent you're right. i think the end of the iraq war, for example, was already in play when obama took office and in fact president obama kept many of the bush national security people around him like robert gates, the secretary of defense, at the beginning of his administration. so to some extent, you've actually got a point. but in terms of bin laden, you know, there's a clip of george w. bush at one poi
night in baltimore or any big city, the costs are astronomical. the states have a real problem. mark, does that clip show two different mitt romneys? it shows how tied in knots he is and afraid of making a mistake. this is an issue he knows well. any governor knows emergency room care z the stupid as possible way to provide care to people. plom is so afraid to say what he really thinks because he doesn't want to make a mistake. he can never win if he's tied on notes on something that close to his heart. >> that was painful to watch. okay. help me out here. who is? >> it goes to the core of the frustration. it's not about the party. it's not about anything other than tell us how you get us through. and the fact that you are saying two different things. >> can it be resolved? >> it can be as the governor of the state, this is now how we fund health care. we do have a prescription and this is what it is. >> tomorrow on "morning joe." former president bill clinton will join us. former florida governor jeb bush and goldie hawn. >> that's quite the lineup. two years ago, the people of bp m
